Kelly Dessaint published zines and books under the name Phony Lid, which was a faux publishing "empire." That is, the empire consisted of himself and an outdated Gateway computer.
Zines published by Kelly Dessaint: Vagabond, FyUoCuK, vis-a-septic, and the Pick Pocket Books. After several years of hiatus, currently doing a zine called güero chingón.
While some hardline zinesters would contend that zines and books (especially those with barcodes and ISBNs) were mutually exclusive, Kelly Dessaint employed the same principles to book publishing that he (and the vast majority of zinesters) did to zines: using whatever means were available to put words and images into print.
